Hope for the Holidays

A Special Christmas Message from Kelly Shackelford

On behalf of myself the entire First Liberty team, I’d like to personally wish you and your family a Merry Christmas!

Please take a moment to watch the video below, a special message of gratitude to YOU for supporting and trusting us in this unprecedented year:

Because of your unwavering prayers and faithful support, you’ve helped us achieve incredible victories in the face of intolerable attacks, lockdowns, and unconstitutional challenges to our First Freedom.

Being that today is Christmas Day, now is the perfect time to reflect on the eternal hope provided by our faith. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, political tension and all-out assaults on religious freedom and our nation’s founding principles, God has shown time after time this year that He’s the one ultimately in control.

And for that I am most thankful.

Of course, as this tumultuous 2020 draws to an end, I am ever grateful that YOU were part of First Liberty’s growing army of supporters who—instead of being daunted by this religious freedom crisis—rallied around us with courage, resilience and tenacity as we fought wave after wave of crucial legal battles for our most cherished freedoms.

Indeed, all of our successes and triumphs during this year reveal something very special: When we work together as ONE team, in ONE  fight, with ONE purpose, through God’s grace, we can accomplish great things.

Again, THANK YOU for being a faithful supporter of First Liberty.

Looking ahead, I’m filled with hope and encouragement that 2021 will be “The One”—a year when we’ll see a resurgence of religious freedom unlike any that I’ve seen in my lifetime.

A blessed holiday season to you, your family and loved ones.
